Betting prediction: Leicester City 1 – 1 Brighton
Leicester City welcomes Brighton to the King Power Stadium on Sunday for this Premier League match. The Foxes have the upper hand in the head-to-head, with six wins to Brighton’s one, from their nine encounters in the Premier League.
Leicester are also in good form at home having won their last three of their last four Premier League matches here, but could possibly be damaged by a shocking late collapse against Tottenham. Brighton have proven to be tough to beat on the road though, having lost only one Premier League away match all season; the fewest in the Premier League.

Leicester City 1 – 1 Brighton – Brighton are the Premier League’s draw-masters having drawn in 11 of their 21 games so far this season; two more than any other side. A 1-1 has been their favoured scoreline having already drawn a third of their matches, including five of their last eight league games, with this score. Therefore, 101 Great Goals’ prediction for this match is Leicester City 1 – 1 Brighton and is available at odds of 6.5/1.
Under 2.5 goals – Since the turn of the millennium, these sides have faced each other 11 times in league action, with eight (or 73%) ending as under 2.5 goals games. You can back another low scoring game here on Sunday with odds of 1.9/1 for under 2.5 goals.
Leicester City vs Brighton: What are the betting odds?
The Foxes are 2.4/1 to take all three points from Brighton on Sunday as they have done in three of the four home matches in this head-to-head in the Premier League era.
Whereas, the Seagulls are 3/1 to pick up a first away win at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League.
Odds of 3.25/1 are available if you see Leicester City and Brighton cancelling each other out on Sunday as they did in the EFL Cup Fourth Round when they last met here back in October.

Leicester City vs Brighton: Match preview
Both teams had surprises in their midweek selections that caused a stir amongst their respective fanbases.
Brendan Rodgers switched to a back three at home for the first time since losing back-to-back home matches 0-2 and 0-3 to Arsenal and Chelsea respectively earlier in the season. It seemed to have an impact too with Patson Daka giving them the lead midway through the first half, albeit against the run of play.
Ultimately the narrative of this match will be of Leicester’s late collapse, turning a 2-1 lead into a 2-3 defeat with goals in the 94th and 96th minutes of the match. Whether or not Leicester’s formation can be attributed to that is up for debate, but the Foxes were more vulnerable at the back than ever, conceding 27 shots during the match of which seven were what Opta deem ‘big scoring chances’.
With Harvey Barnes available again, it would be a surprise if Rodgers sticks with this formation. It is more likely to see a return to a back four with Hamza Choudhury returning to the bench where he has spent almost the entirety of this season so far.
Graham Potter was also criticised for benching his two top scorers – Leandro Trossard and Neal Maupay (pictured above) – for the match against Chelsea in midweek. The pair have started almost every game when fit and will surely be reinstated to the starting eleven.
The Seagulls have proven very resilient this season, albeit drawing more often than winning. They will be a tough nut to crack for a Leicester side missing several key attacking players. Unlike the Spurs match in midweek, we don’t see this one being a high-scoring affair but rather a tight game with few goals. Ultimately, a point likely suits both managers here.
Leicester City team news vs Brighton
The Foxes are still without their African quartet of Kelechi Iheanacho, Nampalys Mendy, Daniel Amartey, and Wilfred Ndidi due to their ongoing involvement in the African Cup of Nations.
Jonny Evans, Timothy Castagne, Jamie Vardy, and Ricardo Pereira all remain on the long-term injury list and won’t be in consideration for some time. Wesley Fofana (pictured above) and Ryan Bertrand are nearest to a return to action but aren’t expected to be involved until after the coming international break.
James Justin made his long-awaited return to action in midweek as an early second-half substitute while Barnes also made his first league appearance since before Christmas. Both are in contention to start here with Luke Thomas and Hamza Choudhury the most likely players to make way.
Brighton team news vs Leicester City
In contrast to Leicester, Brighton are without only Yves Bissouma (pictured above) due to the AFCON. They are also without Jeremy Sarmiento, Enock Mwepu, and Jason Steele due to injury. However, Shane Duffy, Lewis Dunk, and Adam Lallana are all nearing a return to action and face a late fitness test to be involved in the squad travelling to Leicester.
Trossard and Maupay were left out of the starting XI against Chelsea in midweek. The pair are expected to be recalled to the starting line-up here, likely in place of Danny Welbeck and Steven Alzate.
